Boys’ Bedding

I think boys are under served when it comes to their bedrooms. When decorating my son’s room, I found the available bedding choices mostly limited to basic stripes and plaids along with sports, dinosaur and transportation themes. So what do you choose for a brainy, creative kid who’s not interested in sports and has out-grown T. Rex and fire trucks? How about some playful patterns in boyish colors that would appeal to a boy’s creative side and last through his teen years. Below are some of my ideas. So if you know anyone in the bedding business, please send them my way!

There’s a great little neighborhood bar and grill near my house called The Chatterbox Pub. One side of the restaurant is a lounge area with sofas and coffee tables where you can relax, enjoy a drink and play the vintage board games they have on hand. The whole place is decorated with vintage artifacts and I think these pillows would fit right in.

Hence, this new pattern is dubbed Chatterbox. Besides pillows, this pattern would look great on placemats, kitchen towels and bedding.

In Love with Black and White

What is it about black and white? How is it that something so basic, so lacking in color can also look fresh, sophisticated and new? It’s a mystery to me. But when you consider the boldness of a Keith Haring design at one end of the spectrum and the amazing subtleties of an Ansel Adams photo on the other it seems like the potential for black and white is endless.
